tell you more about it. the event is called dining out for life. basically, they will deliver meals to those who are critically ill, and their families. more on that in a moment. but first, we got to tell what you we're cooking. this is basically a tomato crayfish scramble. jeremy price, you cook here. what is going into this thing? >> we're starting with a crayfish corn and tomato salad, and we're going to add eggs, jasmine rice, some greens, and some cheese, and start it right now. >> while jeremy cooks, i'm going to talk to tom. tell us about movable feast. i mention you help people and get meals to them if they're critically ill. >> we're a 21-year-old program in baltimore. we're the only program that delivers home cooked meals to individuals who are critically ill. a lot of our cloonts have h.i.v., and that's why originally we were founded. we've since expanded our mission to people with aids, people with breast cancer, people who have other life-threatening conditions who aren't able to get out of their homes to go shopping or not well enough to prepare their meals or just don't have the resources also to make sure that they have nutritious meals each day. >> this is aing about financed raiser. they're donating 50% of the proceedsrd, but also the other restaurants, which there are 50 that are participating, are donating 20% of the proceeds. >> we have restaurants that donate 20% to 50% of their income, bar and food, that night to movable feast. we have 50 restaurants who have come to the table this year. in this economy, we really appreciate it. that's an outstanding commitment of the restaurants in baltimore. >> while we watch jeremy cook this, tell us where we can get tickets and where we can find out which restaurants are participating. >> go to our website, which is mc.org and click on dining out for life. it lists all the restaurants there, the level of participation that they have, and we ask just to go out, dine out, and save a life, mack a difference. >> wonderful. it's a win-win situation for everybody involved. it's a win-win here this morning, as we're smelling great here with this crayfish tomato scramble. it looks awesome. let's look at h.d. doppler radar and find out what our weather forecast holds for us today. it's going to be quite nice, man a couple of clouds this morning, as the dry front not developing any rain, gets through here. other than that, high and dry. high pressure builds in, so a nice ridge of canadian high pressure will keep us dry for the first half of the week. maybe you want to warm up with a nice scrambled egg dish like we are here this morning at clementine. that's it for now. tony, over to you. >> sure does sound look a win-win. you get to eat great food and help out a great cause. what was the name of this dish that you're cooking this morning? >> well, crayfish is a southern way, or call it crawfish, tomato scramble. so crayfish, crawfish, tomato scramble, it has rice, and it looks awesome and smells great. >> thank you, sandra. talk to you again next half-hour, see how the dish turned out. weatherwise, just mine for the monday morning commute. we had a front go through a couple of hours ago t. did produce a couple of sprinkles, but none of that is going to be left behind here for the commute, and that's certainly a good thing. temperatures are in the 60's. 62 in parkton. it's 66 in rock hall and 63 degrees in westminster. so for this time of the year, it's relatively mild to start out in the 60's. as you know, it can easily be in the 40's and 50's. big area of high pressure dropping down out of the great lakes will be the dominating factor in our weather story here over the next couple of days. this front continues to slip down to the south. there's no precipitation along the front, and with the high coming in from the northwest, it's obvious that we're going to stay dry today and probably tomorrow as well. a little bit of high, thin cloud cover still showing up on the satellite, so we'll call it partly to mostly sunny. that cloud deck you see on the edge of the screen, those are the outer bands of igor. finally we get to say goodbye to this big storm. it came across bermuda last night as a category one hurricane. i didn't see any reports of catastrophic damage or anything. there was a big storm surge with it, but it's pulling away from the island now, and it will move into the open waters of the atlantic. and again, we can finally say goodbye to igor. our forecast here at home, mostly sunny, a little breezy, but nice. high temperatures this afternoon will be in the upper 70's. sunrise coming up at 6:52, and it should be a beautiful sunrise. mostly clear tonight. i'm going call it chilly. temperatures will drop back into the upper 40's in the cooler northwest suburbs, mid to upper 50's in the city. sun sets at 7:07. seven-day forecast, nice day tomorrow, sunshine, up to 80 degrees f. you're a summer weather fan, you'll like the end of the week. we'll hit the mid 80's wednesday, thursday, and friday, but scattered thunderstorms. by the way, if you're playing at home, autumn begins at wednesday night at 11:09 p.m. >> thank you, tony. 5:51, 66 degrees on tv hill. there's much more ahead on 11 news today. >> and take a look at last night's winning maryland lottery numbers. hope you had them. tax on everything you buy? that's in andy harris' unfair tax plan. 23% sales tax. a 23% sales tax will cut my business in half. would be devastating. andy harris' 23% sales tax absolutely makes no sense. 23% sales tax would really make things unaffordable. that's too high for the average american out here. i don't know how we would manage it really. don't like that idea. we can't afford andy harris' idea. i'm frank kratovil and i approve this message. >> the parents of a 6-year-old say their daughter was dismissed from a cheering squd after they complained about what they say was inappropriate words in one of the cheers. jennifer tesch was shocked when they are daughter kennedy came home from practice and demonstrated her routine. tesch says when they went to the coach and general manager to express her concern, she got the runaround. eventually the managers of the detroit-area cheerleading squad reportedly removed the girl from the squad, adding that they are keeping the 20-year-old cheer. >> and the lyrics are, our backs ache, our skerts are too tight, we shack our booties from left to right. and at that point, i was just kind of in shock, and right away the next day i addressed it with the coach and the general manager of the wolverines. >> well, tesch says other cheerleading squads have offered to put kennedy on their team. and that brings us to our water cooler question of the day. do you think a detroit-area cheering squad's choice of cheers is too racy for 6-year-olds? email your response to watercooler@wbaltv.com. >> good morning, everybody. two weeks into the young nfl season, the ravens are one of 16 teams with a 1-1 record. 15-10, they lose to the bengals on sunday. defensively, the ravens were stellar. they were outstanding. offensively, did not play well.

ball over and feeling responsible for winning the game, but we got to come back just like we do every week. we're 1-1. we got 14 games left. and we feel like we have a pretty darn good team. we just got to go out there and play like that. you move on. you take it game by game and get ready for the cleveland browns, and that's what we got to do. i don't think anybody feels good about it. you know,

the morning, 74 in the afternoon. we were in the 70s yesterday but from saturday and friday we added a couple of more 90s to the list. and building the record across the area as to how many 90-degree days we've had in a technicaldar technical -- calendar year. we're now 64 in baltimore. a sign of a very moist morning where we had 64 up towards philly and not much different towards richmond, 66 degrees. look at the periods of heavy rain, continue to move through. i say periods of heavy rain because they are showing up in bands, breaks in between, another band on down towards the south. and pull this back wider and you can see the reinforcing shot of tropical moisture feeding off the gulf and florida and pushing through the carolinas and up to our north. low pressure on top of atlanta, georgia this morning, pumping in that moisture. that is going to continue to keep us wet. we're on the cool side with an easterly wind wrapping around the back side of that storm but overall a rainy pattern will continue as we watch the bands of rain and some surges of heavy rain, maybe even locally heavy downpours and thunder mixed in. 4:00 this afternoon to our south, a band of rain to the mountains. that tries to swing through in the evening, overnight and tomorrow morning. could be very wet at the start. we'll try to swing this through as we head through the afternoon and evening tomorrow but it really all depends on how this area of low pressure to our north behaves and how soon we can get that trailing cold front to swing past the baltimore but it's likely to get hung up near or south of ocean city and another area of low pressure will ride up the coast. and may push this moisture back towards us by the end of the week. overall, we've got a wet day. periods of heavy rain. we may see one to two inches of rain and localized flooding, holding our temperature to 72 degrees. temperatures steady or nearly rising overnight. as we'll have a surge of warmary, we're about 67 and we can push the low 70s towards daybreak tomorrow with the surge of rain and maybe thunderstorms and during the day tomorrow itself. we're up to 78 degrees. it will be a warmer day and more of that rain and mixed in thunder. >>> how about the rest of the week? we'll check it out in a couple of minutes. kim brown has another look at the roads. >> so far we've been lucky the wet roads and rain hasn't caused accidents as of yet. however, we are dealing with some standing water, some possible flooding on route 50 at 301 in route 197. you -- if you have to travel there keep an eye open for that. snowden river parkway, the ramp to westbound route 100 continues to be closed because of an oil spill. they are sending sand trucks there but the traffic circle remains closed. 95, look at the road spray kicking up from the traffic early on. that is going to keep the visibility reduced and people are trying to take it easy as they make their way around. fortunately, northbound and southbound 95 look good. no problems yet. on 795 southbound, no real issues, it's about 12 minutes between route 140 towards the beltway. like i said, just keep your speeds down because you could see ponding oor standing water. that could make for a hydroplaning situation so be careful. back to you. >>> i only see movies made with starring roles or casts for michael douglas, robert de niro, maybe

residents to travelers to emergency responders are watching and waiting as hurricane earl moves closer. i'm kelly swoope, good evening. it's still too early to tell what effect earl will have on the mid-atlantic. all eyes are on it and that includes meteorologist wyatt everhart who is here with the latest. >> looking at the 11:00 information. hurricane earl is as powerful as ever and the track more concerning as it hugs the east coast of the united states even tighter as we look into the days ahead. hurricane earl right now a powerful, large, category 4 storm. of course there's two things we look at, the power and the size. this is bigger than the state of florida and cuba put together. here's a perspective of the storm as it makes its way up the east coast. the latest track staying off-shore from florida, coming in to the edge of north carolina, and sliding up and then making a turn as it moves off the maryland coast line here very, very close. in fact, just too close for comfort. here's a look at the forecast in the coming days down at the beach if you're headed that way for labor day weekend. most of the weekend looks nice but up through friday things will be dicey as the surf gets huge down there and big rip currents, too. we'll talk more about the heat wave here in baltimore and much more detail on hurricane earl, coming up, kelly. >> thanks, wyatt. >>> emergency management officials will be keeping a close eye of earl's track this week. they have advice for people who are planning to head down to ocean city for labor day weekend. christian schaefer is here with that story. >> reporter: there doesn't appear to be any need to cancel your plans, but you need to keep an eye on the forecast and that's not all. another bit of advice: stay out of the water. waves could reach 15 feet on friday, this man found himself caught in a rip current today with hurricane earl still far out into the atlantic. >> it's taking a while. starting to get while. i saw the life guard and maybe he could help me. >> reporter: life guards made hundreds of rescues because of rip currents from hurricane danielle. they're still at it this week and it's going to get worse. >> suddenly, i'm getting scared, i'm like, oh, no. but they got me back out. >> reporter: at the maryland emergency management agency, they're expecting earl to remain 200 miles off the coast. but they know: >> it takes a little nudge to make it problematic. >> reporter: back in 2003, hurricane isabel got a nudge and it wound up flooding the bullard area with little warning. this time fire and rescue crews are not taking any chances. >> when the road started to flood we started to prepare. that was too late. >> reporter: put together an emergency kit, containing things like fresh water, a battery powered radio and non-perishable food. they've been moving trailers and blankets to the eastern shore but not too many. >> we can't move too many to the east side because in isabel they did the same thing and couldn't get back over to the west side and it was the west side impacted at the last minute. >> reporter: if you are driving to ocean city this weekend. keep an eye on the forecast. the strongest portions of the storm should be hitting friday afternoon so the nema director says if you want to wait until friday evening to drive when it clears up, we have more information on what you should include in the emergency kit on our website, abc2news.com. christian schaefer, abc2 news. >>> ocean city director of emergency management is joining us. >> good evening, how are you? >> good, thank you. what does this mean for your preparations, how is the city getting ready. >> the 8:00 forecast has not changed our preparation or our frame of mind. earl is a powerful storm, we've been in the cone of uncertainty for days at hand. we've been working out the internal procedures for the city. and we're going to continue to monitor this, we hope that earl stays off the coast, it should impact us more than what we're appear at this point in time we'll be ready for it. the rest of the weekend should be good. friday we will have the effect of earl. just a question of how far we will be impacted and as everybody else will tell you on the line, we don't know cuss on the skinny black line within the cone. we expect to see some tropical storm force winds and some precipitation. the public has to use common sense and possibly, you know, if needed -- if friday is a bad day, consider delaying your coming to ocean city until the conditions improve later that day. >> danielle was quite a ways from shore but after what happened this weekend, i know there were numerous rescues, how important is it for people to realize how dangerous those rip tides can be. >> the surf will be active this weekend. the public is in partnership. they have to use common sense. don't go into the water unless the life guards are on duty and consider that the rip currents will be very strong and use common sense. so we're going to monitor the situation. we'll be out in force, all the organizations and the departments are going to be working, and we'll ensure that public safety is number one, and property conservation with our mitigation efforts are in place. >> any advice for people planning on coming to the beach this weekend? don't cancel your plans, obviously. >> i don't think we're at the point where cancelling plans is necessary. use common sense in traveling. friday will be appear less than favorable. but saturday the sun will be shining in ocean city as it does most summer weekends. >> director of emergency management, thank you for joining us tonight and good luck to you this weekend. >> have a good night. >>> well, while we watch and wonder where earl will end up and as christian showed us many folks across the region might be thinking back to 2003. it was later in september that year when hurricane isabel took aim at the mid-atlantic. she blasted virginia beach towns before moving inland and weakening to a tropical storm. normally that would be a good thing but not considering the size of the storm. even though it's center was moving across western maryland and pennsylvania, its circulation was pushing water back up the bay causing epic flooding, from annapolis to downtown baltimore. people were wading or paddling just to try to get around. >>> now we want you to know that you can get the latest on earl's path on our website, abc2news.com. we're going to have up-to-the-minute forecasts and the latest updates from everyone that

cutoff by two months. >> we agreed to the rules that they laid out. they were the ones that had everything laid out on the table when we came in and applied for this job and took it and now halfway
